Day of Defeat

What is Day of Defeat?

Day of Defeat (DoD) is a team-based multiplayer World War II first-person shooter video game of the European Theatre of World War II. Day of Defeat is a 3D multiplayer shooter that simulates squad-level infantry combat between the adversaries of World War II's European Theatre; the Allies or the Axis Powers. The goal is to complete various mission objectives. Day of Defeat maps do not always require that both teams have the same objectives. Some of the more popular maps have different objectives for each team.


Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is hl.exe. The software installer includes 82 files and is usually about 27.78 MB (29,124,329 bytes). hlupdate.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.
